Five actors. Four chairs. One square.

Imago, an award-winning dance performance from Stockholm, is making its way to Brighton Fringe this May, where it will make its highly-anticipated international debut.

One of 12 Nordic Fringe Season shows on at the Old Market, the tragicomic physical theatre piece explores the themes of community versus alienation, friends versus enemies and conformity versus uniqueness.

Five characters are confronted with their own community, providing a reflection of Nordic society through a kaleidoscope of movements.

The show looks at the way society excludes and includes, with compassion always prevailing.

Adam Potrykus, co-founder of Stockholm Fringe Festival & Nordic Fringe Network, said: “The audience can expect an emotional, feel-good journey.”

The talented cast, Joakim Fernström, Miriam Kroneld, Sofia Wittmark, Johannes Lundberg and Josefin Jacobsson, have performed in various productions across Sweden, so they are no strangers to the festival stage.

Imago was originally created for Mosaikteatern, one of the leading theatres in Sweden, and there is no doubt it will be a resounding success with theatre fans in Brighton.


Imago appeared at Brighton Fringe Friday, 17 May and Saturday, 18 May.
